4 November 2019

We are delighted to announce that our school PTA Bonfire Night and Fireworks Display, on Friday 1st November 2019, was a resounding success. Despite the wet weather forecast, tickets had sold out just hours before the event took place. It was lovely to welcome parents, carers, pupils, members of staff and families from the local community.

Our school PTA received lots of positive feedback with many commenting on the fantastic atmosphere, organisation, bonfire and impressive fireworks. Even the rain couldn’t dampen the spirits of the attendees.

As the bonfire, built by our school site team, blazed away, the crowds were treated to a spectacular fireworks display and live music provided by the school's music department. 

The food stalls were very busy, offering a wide selection of choices including curries, pies, hot dogs, burgers, drinks, cakes, sweets as well as the traditional Preston dish of parched peas.

The PTA would like to thank parents and carers for all their support. Many thanks to all the parents, carers and pupils who donated delicious cakes for the event.

1,000 people attended the Bonfire Night and Fireworks Display, raising over £4000 for PTA funds. This money will help to improve the school environment and fund events for pupils in school. 

The PTA could not hold this event without the support of the following people; Mrs Siddle, the Senior Leadership Team, teachers and support staff, the site team and Mrs Higson, Catering Manager, and the catering team. A special thank-you to all parents and carers who helped with setting up, marshalling and operating the stalls.

The PTA have already had some very positive feedback from parents but if you would like to comment or suggest improvements please email pta@archbishoptemple.com

The PTA’s next big event is the PTA Quiz Night, in May, but please continue to support the PTA throughout the next few months. If you would like to get involved with volunteering, please email pta@archbishoptemple.com or come along to a meeting, everyone is welcome.

The next PTA meeting is on Thursday 14th November 2019 at 7pm in the Music Block.
